A Sprinkle of Colour in an Elegant Stockholm Home

February calls for a little brightness, don't you think? And that's exactly why this Swedish apartment caught my eye! It's sprinkled with colour in the form of art, patterns, furniture and books - yet still feels calm and elegant. Just what I needed to see on a Monday. I hope this lovely home brightens up the start of you week too! 

The Ligne Roset Togo Fireside chair is one to sink into!

Especially when you have a Swedish fireplace like this to sit beside. It's like a work of art! 

A big hallway lends itself to bookshelves and an antique bench! 

Faded kilims are the new favourite here in Scandinavia. But there's no need to do away with your monochrome Beni ourain - they make a cosy wall hanging or headboard! 

The wide windowsills also provide a perfect perch for books! 

To the left and right of the door you can see some wall pockets. Sourced from Norrgavel, these PĂ„shyllor are hugely popular in Sweden as they are great for smaller accessories such as gloves, hats, scarves etc. 

Such a lovely apartment - fantastic bones too! 

It's going on the market this week via Historiska Hem - so keep an eye out for it if you're interested!

Have a fabulous start to the week!

  1. I was immediately drawn in by the sunshiny kitchen. That fireplace! Wow! Lots of fun artwork, too.

  2. Beautiful except I do find the living room too cold with too many hatd surfaces. Could use more texture or linen drapes IMO

  3. Favorite details: I agree with Kris, that fireplace is absolutely amazing! The traditional crown molding. And the bathroom is really stunning, too. The light pouring in for the plants through the rippled privacy window. Even in that tiny space they've managed a shower stall AND tub. Tubs are sooo important for that spa evening lol.

  4. I love the mix of beautiful architectural details on the ceiling moldings and trim with modern touches. The Scandinavians do this so well! And the fireplace is exquisite and unique! I also admired the bathroom for its simple beauty. The textured window for privacy without the need for window coverings in a humid environment is something I really appreciate.

  5. Yayyy, finally - I've been trying desperately (although not too hard, haha) to find the brand of these wonderful, typically Swedish/scandinavian wall pockets, thank you!

  6. I, too, love those wall pockets. What a brilliant idea! What type of wood flooring is that (and in many Swedish homes)? Is it pine?
